Arcadia Britannica: A Modern British Folklore Portrait

  • $4500

When the British arrived in New Zealand with everything including the kitchen sink they did leave something behind – their folklore traditions. This fabulous collection of photographs snapped at folk festivals the length and breadth of Britain showcase the revelers dressed up to welcome in the Spring, wassail the apple trees, honour the spirit of the woods, and more.

Arcadia Britannica is the product of photographer Henry Bourne, and an accompanying text by Simon Costin provides the historical backstory and explains the folklore behind this wacky, inspiring collection of images.
